Thank you for the calls, phone banking, precinct walking, tabling at events, turn out the vote, sharing information with friends and colleagues, and all the energy, time and effort that you put into passing Prop. 47!!! It was a historic victory for reforming our criminal justice system in California. We look forward to partnering with many of you as we insure the implementation of Prop. 47 will benefit our communities in greatest need.
Message from Californians for Safe Neighborhoods and Schools on Passage of Prop. 47
This victory shows that people of all walks of life want more schools and less prisons, more prevention and less incarceration, more help and less harm.
The possibilities now in front of us are powerful. We are starting to imagine a California that builds 22 new universities over the coming decades, instead of 22 new prisons; a California that focuses law enforcement on violent and serious crime while investing in prevention and treatment to stop the cycle.
The future California — where communities have what they need to be safe and healthy and ever-growing prisons are a relic of the past — is within our grasp.
